Carnival Splendor

December 2015 - Carnival Splendor to Caribbean - Eastern

Not a good experience on this ship

The worst cruise I have been on. This ships was not designed or staffed to support the number of guests on board. We had to wait for everything; the buffet had excessive long lines, had to wait for sit-down breakfast/brunch, waited for over an hour for dinner. Entertainment was lacking on quantity. Never book a room on deck 6 Aft. The night clubs vibrated our room every night. We could hear the words of the songs and the conversations of the people in the club. I will never book a cruise on the Splendor again.

vtcavediver's Tips

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - We did the skytram to Paradise Point. It's a nice view from the top, but not much up there. Pretty much just a bar with a view shops. Worth doing for the view
Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic - Pool area is good with a splash pad for young kids. The zip line is a good value for unlimited rides. The downside to this port is that there is just the port with the cruise line typical shops. There is no town nearby to actually experience the local culture.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Good port being that it is in Old San Juan. We walked to both of the forts and did the tours at our pace. It is a little bit of an uphill climb to the first fort, but then it is a flat walk along the cliff to get to the one at the mouth of the harbor inlet. I would recommend just walking to the forts and go at your own pace instead of taking the tour with the large crowd.
Grand Turk Island - The downside to this port is that there is just the port with the cruise line typical shops. There is no town nearby to actually experience the local culture.
Carnival Splendor Carnival Splendor - Any Time dining was not a relaxing or convenient experience on this ship. Every other ship we have been on, it was fast and immediately seated. On this ship, there was not sufficient space allocated for anytime dining in comparison to assigned seats.
